Visa Inc. V Stock As A Short-Term Trade Using Options

Visa Inc.’s stock has options that traders can trade to take advantage of their price movement in either direction, while also hedging against volatility.

I am looking at the contracts with the 2/18 expiration date.

The $227.50 & $230 calls look interesting, although the in-the-money calls are a lot less liquid than the latter.

The $235 puts look appealing, and as V has weekly expirations, I expect to see more contracts written in the near-future to provide more open interest.

Tying It All Together

Overall, traders & investors should take a closer look at Visa Inc. stock.

Investors will find their valuation & balance sheet to be interesting, although they will need to examine a few things I outlined above more thoroughly before investing.

Traders will like their current momentum path, as well as their options’ liquidity as more contracts are written after weekly expirations.

V stock is worth taking a closer look at, regardless of your trading style.
